After working many years in one of the leading marine classification societies and holding a vast number of technical and managerial positions in the marine and energy sector, Anthony decided to open his own business.

“I find it more rewarding on every level to take personal responsibility for what it is I believe I have to offer. Of course, you have to take a realistic look at the downside … I have done that and I am happy to take the risk.” ~Anthony O’Reilly

Originally setup in Ireland, one of the company’s key goals is to expand and flourish in the UK.As a result, Anthony got in contact with our Company Formation’s team to open the UK branch of Derry Connell Marine.
